Our framework for being a sustainable and responsible energy business

The Better Plan is an integral part of EDF’s 2030 vision – to be the efficient, responsible electricity company, and champion of low-carbon growth.

Our society depends on energy to live, work, develop and grow. Our customers depend on us to produce enough affordable energy– and to do it in a sustainable way. And we depend on our people to help us take on new challenges and fulfil our ambitions.

We want to deliver Better Lives, Better Experience and Better Energy for all of society.

The Better Plan will help us to drive innovation, achieve profitable business growth, save costs and manage the risks of doing business in an increasingly volatile world – and, importantly, that we do all these things in a sustainable and a responsible way.

Better Lives

We know that what we do has a lasting impact on people’s lives so we are investing in training and job creation, skills and education. We want to be at the forefront of the UK’s long-term industrial transformation, and in doing so, help to close the equality gaps that we see in our society today.

An investment in people is an investment in our country and our company’s future – whether it’s creating thousands of job opportunities or reaching out to our communities through our visitor centres.   

Better Experience

We want to be better than anyone else at solving customers’ energy needs and we’ll achieve this by doing the basics brilliantly and offering great service.

Our ambition is to be the best and most trusted for customers. And our vision for our customers is to be simply better - better than anyone else at solving customer’s energy needs.

Better Energy

We believe in a decarbonised future and we are committed to leading the UK’s transition to a safe, low-carbon energy.

The Climate Change Act in 2008, committed the UK Government to reduce carbon emissions by at least 80% of 1990 levels by 2050. In 2016, the UK renewed this commitment to a low-carbon energy mix when it ratified the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. By 2050, low-carbon nuclear and renewables will fulfil most of our electricity needs.

As the UK’s largest low-carbon generator, EDF Energy is enabling this future.

Sustainable and responsible

At EDF Energy, we are on a journey to become a more sustainable energy business. The Better Plan covers our priorities for the future, as well as what we measure to see how we’re doing. It is supported by frequent stakeholder engagement, regular materiality assessments, and through our governance.  

We update our progress against The Better Plan and our Better Energy Ambitions on an annual basis, based on a calendar year. 

Our Better Energy Ambitions

Our six Better Energy Ambitions set out our short, medium and long-term goals and targets for improving our social, economic and environmental performance.

By meeting these ambitions, we will have created Better Lives, Better Experience and Better Energy in a responsible and sustainable way.
